Why is it so hard to find a .355 single bend shaft?

Seriously...it shouldn’t be this difficult to find a replacement option for .355 single bend mallet putter shafts.



Does anybody know where I can find some?



Thanks,



- Josh

    I've never heard of that. What putter requires a taper tip single bend?

    Pretty much all Scotty Cameron mallets are .355 tip single or double bend shafts. The newer Selects are single bends.

    Getting a hold of .355 single bends is about as difficult as catching a **** in the wind.

    I’ve got one from an X5 in my basement that I yanked when I made it a flow neck. It played 34” I think.

    Chip Usher has them in his eBay store from time to time. But I agree, way too hard to find.

    .355 single bend or .370?



    I've NEVER seen a .355...

    Even the one Chip has listed are .355 double bend...not single. I was looking for a specific shaft for a JAT I had refinished and sent Chip a message through his eBay store, he was able to find one for me even though he didn't have it listed. Might be worth a shot to see if he's got any. His name on there is Chipaputt if you need it.

    Recently made my own ....not quite the same as the .355" preprioritory Scotty shafts ,
    that have parallel tip section of .355" about 3" long....but I was able to make a ,355 tip,
    single bend shaft using an old Rifle Precision stepless wedge shaft...this is the how...

    Found some brass beads with an OD of 19/64" and strung them on a wire leader made
    for fishing . This was to make a mandrel to keep the shaft from collapsing during bending.
    Made a bending jig with peg board , pegs , and thread spools. Then with a MAP gas torch,
    heated and bent the shaft to match the bend in the shaft I was replacing. Removed mandrel. The heating left some discoloration, so for cosmetic reasons I used heat shrink
    tube , to complete my homemade .355" tip , single bend , black shaft ......

    TEE EX10 Beta 16.5* / Fuji Platinum Speeder 5-SR
    TEE EX10 19* / Fuji Platinum Speeder 6-S
    TEE EX9 22* / Attas 4U 7-S.
    TEE EX9 25* / Attas 4U 7-X
    I have added about 10 grams of weight to all the fwy / hybrid
    shafts , using Sensicore inserts wrapped with lead tape.

    Cobra Forged Tec Black / 28* 6 iron thru 49.5* GW / 4.5* gapping
    Recoil 780 Es Smac wrap F3 / GW shaft internally weighted to 95 grams

    King Black Wedges / 54* versatile/ Recoil 95 F3 shaft weighted to 110 grams
    58* versatile / Recoil 110 F4 shaft weighted to 125 grams ( heat shrink tube )

    For anyone looking, I have two of these shafts available. Both have Matador grips. One is for a counter balance X5 and the other one is a 34" finished length for an X5. Both single bend, both .355. DM me if interested.

    Thanks,
